Western Australia Satellite Dish

Sep 01,2023

  • Location: Western Australia
  • Equipment: 250 kVA Diesel Generator + long-range Fuel Tank + Load Bank
  • Electric output mode: Standby Supply
  • Field / fuel: Space Industry / Diesel
  • Total output power: 250 kVA

In the remote and rugged landscapes of Western Australia, maintaining a consistent power supply can be a daunting challenge. The region’s vast expanses are often beyond the reach of traditional power infrastructure, making standby power solutions a necessity for critical operations. PowerLink, a leading manufacturer in the power generation industry, recently collaborated with PR Power (, one of our trusted Partners, to address this very challenge for a satellite communication project in Western Australia. This satellite dish is used by a space services company.

The Challenge

The project centered around ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for a satellite dish installation located in a remote area of Western Australia. The site’s isolation meant that access to reliable power was limited, and any disruption to the satellite’s operation could have severe consequences for communication networks, remote research, and data transmission. A dependable standby power source was crucial to maintain seamless operations in this critical communication hub.

The Solution

PowerLink and PR Power joined forces to design and implement a robust solution that would meet the project’s demands. After thorough assessments and consultations with the client, it was determined that a generator with a capacity of 250 kVA would be the ideal power source for the satellite dish. This generator was chosen for its reputation of reliability, efficiency, and performance in challenging environments.

The comprehensive solution included:

  1. PowerLink Generator (250 kVA): PowerLink’s expertise in manufacturing high-quality generators provided the project with a durable and dependable power source. The PowerLink generator’s ability to deliver consistent power over extended periods made it an excellent fit for the project’s requirements.
  2. Fuel Tank: To ensure extended operational hours without interruptions, a long-range fuel tank was integrated with the generator as well. This allowed for an autonomous power supply that could be sustained for an extended period, minimizing the need for frequent refueling trips to the remote site.
  3. Load Bank: PowerLink also provided a load bank to simulate real-world conditions and test the generator’s performance under various load levels. This rigorous testing ensured that the generator could handle the satellite dish’s power demands without faltering.

The Outcome

The collaborative efforts of PowerLink and PR Power resulted in the successful implementation of a robust standby power solution. The generator, paired with the fuel tank and load bank, ensured that the satellite dish received a continuous and reliable power supply, safeguarding the critical communication functions it supported.

The benefits of the solution extended beyond the technical aspects. By mitigating the risks of power outages and disruptions, the project stakeholders gained peace of mind, knowing that their investment in advanced standby power infrastructure would provide returns in the form of uninterrupted connectivity and data transmission.


In the remote expanses of Western Australia, where reliable power is a precious commodity, PowerLink and PR Power’s joint efforts enabled for this satellite dish installation to remain operational and connected, contributing to research, communication, and data dissemination in even the most isolated regions.
